Premier League: Liverpool players ratings in Wolves win as Robertson turns a machine while the Reds close gap on Tottenham.

Liverpool dominated the play in their 4-0 win over Wolves on Sunday.

The Premier League defending champions ease pass Wolves as fans return to the KOP for the first time since Match, 2020.

The Reds got off to a brilliant start as Henderson played a delightful ball over the top for Salah to run onto. Conor Coady got to It first but failed to clear it, opting to chest the ball down instead, with Salah lurking just behind and ready to take advantage.

The Egyptian ace slotted home from close range to give the Reds the lead after just 24 minutes into the game.

The Reds had a brief scare just before half time when Conor Coady went down inside Liverpool’s penalty area after running past Sadio Mane.

However, VAR’s intervention overturned the situation in favor of Liverpool.

With the confidence in the Liverpool team, they doubled their advantage in the second half through Georginio Wijnaldum, who picked up a Henderson’s ball midway through the Wolves half before curling the ball into the top corner from the edge of the box.

The game was almost put to bed with just 20 mins left to play. Then Salah came curling in a tempting cross which saw Matip pass Wolve’s Rui Patricio. 

Alexandre Arnold’s  first seven minutes into the game saw him curling in another tempting cross as Sadio Mane put the game to bed by forcing home the Reds’ fourth. The ball went in off Nelson Semedo under pressure from Mane.

EDITOR’S PICK

Liverpool player ratings vs Wolves

Caoimhin Kelleher – 8

Saved Liverpool in more than 5 occasions. Commanded the backline perfectly as he was constantly vocal.

Andy Robertson – 9

Was a constant threat down the left flank and played some nice balls through to Sadio Mane.

He was a bundle of energy and didn’t look like a player who was making his 20th appearance this season already for club and country- a pure monster machine.

Neco Williams – 7

The Welshman plays better when he’s on a yellow card. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know why – he just does.

Fabinho – 8

The Brazilian was ghosted by Adama Traore once but that happens to the best of us. Aside from that one poor decision he was impeccable.

He always looked for a forward pass whenever he received the ball and was crucial in Liverpool’s build-up play.

Joel Matip8.5

The Cameroonian was as composed as ever, a mountain at the back. His goal was thoroughly deserved.

Curtis Jones – 8.5

The Scouser is going to be a marvellous player. The maturity he’s been showing is unreal. His decision-making was top class.

Gini Wijnaldum – 9

The Dutchman’s is indomitable in the middle. Created chances while going forward. His goal was unreal. Sign the contract Gini.

Jordan Henderson – 8

The skipper is just so frighteningly consistent. An energetic power house. What a captain, what a footballer.

Mohamed Salah – 8.5

Mo was lethal as ever this evening, his first half goal was spectacularly well taken. Then that tempting curler for Matip to put the game to bed.

Sadio Mane – 8.5

Constant threat to  Wolves midfield and back-line. That energy running up and down the flanks. The wide man almost got his goal, we’ll give it to him in our hearts. What a showing from Sadio.

Roberto Firmino – 8.5

Bobby is back. His use of the ball was a joy to watch. His vision, his dribbling. That nutmeg. What a player.

Substitutes

Diogo Jota – 7

Looked fairly lively against his old club, but with only half an hour on the pitch there wasn’t too much time for him to make a difference. He came on when the game was already won, and Jota looked in cruise control really.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7

Kept possession well, but didn’t have an awful lot to do after coming on for Williams with half an hour to play. That cross that let to Mane forcing an own goal through Semedo. Will be encouraging for Liverpool fans to see him back after his hamstring injury.

Naby Keita – 6

Came on with ten minutes to play as Jurgen Klopp opted to rest Henderson, and did what was required of him.

Jurgen Klopp – 9

Master-mined the game. Opted for a calm game with no pressure until the final third, long balls, killer crosses and it worked.
